As a dynamic business with a reputation for problem-solving, we believe our extensive experience with rapid deployment shelters, temporary electrical, ventilation and atmospheric control systems and our established supply chain, can help to overcome some of the challenges confronting the health sector and the nation in the face of the COVID-19 crisis.
Guided by a range of State and Federal standards and guidelines we have researched the Australian health sector’s recommendations for COVID-19 infection prevention and control. Recommended control measures include the use of negative and positive pressure isolation rooms (NPIRs and PPIRs) to manage the risk of airborne transmission to healthcare workers and patients and out-of-department “fever clinics” to minimise in-hospital transmission.
In recognising that there is a need to rapidly increase hospital infrastructure surge capacity including NPIRs, PPIRs, ICU beds, out-of-department testing ‘fever clinics’, triage areas and remote area isolation facilities, Safespear has developed products to rapidly increase capacity.
The Safespear SafeFlex is a standalone temporary negative pressure isolation room unit used to isolate COVID-19 patients and can be used to supplement existing NPIR capacity or to provide capability to regional areas where it does not exist.
The units are particularly well suited to aerosol generating procedure isolation rooms either inside or outside of existing medical facilities.
Large, rapidly deployed inflatable-column emergency response shelters are available in a range of sizes, are highly transportable by air or road, weather-proof, climate-controlled and designed to hospital standards.
The shelters can rapidly expand medical infrastructure including intensive care units (ICUs), testing ‘fever’ clinics, triage areas, isolation wards for cohorting and remote area isolation facilities.
The SafeClinic is a modular transportable building used to rapidly provide additional Class-N (Type 5) negative pressure isolation rooms (NPIRs) to increase healthcare infrastructure capacity and help to protect healthcare workers and patients from the risk of COVID-19 aerosol transmission.
